One of the latest celebrities to suffer from foot problems is the teen star Miranda Cosgrove, of ICarley. In 2011, Miranda’s tour bus got into a car accident with a truck on the I-70 in Vandalia, Illinois. As a result, Miranda suffered a broken ankle that she is claiming left her “disfigured and disabled.” Now, in 2013, Cosgrove and her mother are filing lawsuits against the tour bus driver, the truck driver, and the transportation companies involved.
Famous gossip blogger Perez Hilton discussed the issue. He is a bit perplexed by the lawsuit considering Miranda has been spotted multiple times after the accident in high heels- 6 inches high in fact! Although her feet might look fine on the red carpet, only a doctor can diagnose and assess the real damage.
